Bob Cut

Wednesday, June 29, 2011

Looking for a fresh new look for summer?  Try a bob cut hairstyle! This trendy look is a perfect way to keep you feeling cool and to have easy hair for the summer, not to mention it’s a great way to get your hair looking healthy.  When you try this style opt for texture so it’s not a “bowl cut” and will flow nicely.  If you have a round shape face go for a cut that ends below your chin.  If you have an oval or angled face try a super short to shoulder length style.  Experiment and have fun styling by switching up the part, creating beachy waves or pinning back for a multitude of options! Will you make the cut?

I love the bob! I think what made the bob work for me was getting it angled forward starting at the nape and ending at the chin. It gives you a great profile and is just super flattering on all face shapes!

I got my bob the end of May for the summer!!! Especially since I haven't cut my hair short in about 5 years!

Would I try it? Probably not. My hair takes forever to grow out and I cried last time I cut it really short. Right now I've been growing it for 2 years and it's just now at the middle of my back. I love doing sexy beach waves, curly curls, or stick straight hair. I also sometimes love going with a pony tail and adding maybe a pretty clip or head band to sass it up. Definitely going to keep my long hair!

When the weather is hot out, that's the perfect time to keep things short and simple (hair wise that is!). A simple, no fuss bob cut will make one's hair look its summer best! And, by adding the perfect pop of color to such, this will help to to make one's tresses the absolute envy of everyone around them.

What a perfectly timed post, I'm planning to go to the haircutters this weekend. Right now my hair comes down to my hipbone. I love the way I look with long hair, and how you can do so many different styles with it-- but taking care of such long hair is a major pain, especially in 90º weather. I'm going to have it chopped to just below my chin [going to donate my hair ;)]. A bit nervous about going so short, but at the same time I'm super excited too.

I have been thinking about getting a bob cut myself, but I don't think I could pull it off. I wish I could though, it is a really cute and easy hair cut, and really trending.

Bobs are always in, every summer. I loved how much more mature I looked when I got my cut, I'm actually considering it again.

I just recently got a bob style is amazing! i've always had long hair and this has given me the chance to try something new. It looks great with a lot of texture and I recommend it for sure. Really makes my hair look super healthy even after all those years of straightening it!

That looks pretty! I really wish I could get my hair cut that short.. I'm way too possessive about my hair.. I don't know why.. And I really wonder if I ever dare to cut it so short if the style would ever suit me.. I guess short hair mean easy manageability and less caring required.. the only con being it would take over a year for it to grow back to full length.. Maybe I'll give it a try on the computer before I do it for real.. :)

I think bobs are so cute! Unfortunately, I can't pull one off because my hair is so thick. It gets HUGE when I cut it short.

I LOVE a cute bob cut. I think it has something to do with me approaching 40. It just looks so chic and mature but not OLD.
